Greetings and blessings,

I received your letter of Wednesday, Parshas Shelach,with the pan.1 When I visit the gravesite of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe זצוקללה"ה, נבג"ם, זי"ע, I will read the pan and he will certainly arouse manifold mercies for the good.

I will repeat again what I wrote to you previously: that you must establish fixed times for the study of the Torah and that you must be careful with regard to the recitation of the daily portion of Tehillim as the book is divided according to the monthly cycle. [With regard to] what you once wrote me in a letter — that you are very preoccupied — the advice in such [a situation] is to show the Holy One, blessed be He, that despite the constrictions and the pressure, you are establishing fixed times for Torah study, thus fulfilling the charge:2 “If you proceed in My statutes,” interpreted by Rashi as meaning: “If you labor in Torah study,” i.e., with exertion and toil, then the Holy One, blessed be He, will fulfill the promise:3 “I will provide your rains in their season.” As is well known, the inner intent of gishmeichem, “your rains,” is “your gashmiyus,” i.e., that all your material needs will be met at the appropriate time without disturbance and you will be able to serve G‑d amidst tranquility of the soul and tranquility of the body.

With blessings that you establish yourself appropriately both materially and spiritually,
